Hi All,

I have captured a application which install some files to the Winsxs Folder.
Setup Capture is taken in Windows XP.
When i deploy the application in Windows 7 the files are installed in Windows folder and not in the Winsxs Folder.

How can i get rid of this?

Thanks .

The verbose log - which of course you specified on the command line for your test install - will show you how the machine resolved the WinSxS folder name. Does the folder exist on the target machine? If not, do you have an entry for it in the CreateFolder table?

Hi VBScab,

Yes the folder exists in the sytem...............
During installation the Winsxs folder will be derived to C:\windows\Winsxs...............
But after that the installation of the files will happen in Windows folder only..............

This happens only in Windows 7 and Windows Vista only.............
For XP the installation is fine .All the files are installed to the Winsxs Folder.............

That doesn't make sense. You seem to be saying that, when the install completes, the files in WinSxS get removed or moved to %SystemRoot% (note that we generally try to avoid using 'C:\WINDOWS' explicitly, as not everyone installs to that folder name).

We definitely get a lot of questions about the new (to Vista) Windows SxS directory (%System Root%\winsxs)I stopped reading at this point. No question that its use seems to have greatly expanded from its original intention but, if memory serves me correctly, the folder was introduced with Windows ME which was...what, ten years ago?
